I'm using 1.4.2 also, and I might see your trouble. First, note that
in Linux I have to quote the '$' to avoid interpereting as
environment var:

 cd branches
 touch abc\$def.txt
 svn add abc\$def.txt
A abc$def.txt
 svn ci -m"filename with '$'"
Adding branches/abc$def.txt
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 59.

# then I tried 'list' to verify, but does not
# show until I update the WC:

 svn list

 svn update
At revision 59.
 svn list

So maybe it does already exist in your repository.
